- The model is equally suitable for mobile homes and homes.
- Automatic programs dry your dishes too.

For some people, doing dishes with friends at a campsite is part of outdoor living. The idea of a portable dishwasher like a mobile bread maker may seem decadent, unnecessary.

On the other hand: in many new mobile home You can also take the Thermomix with you when you travel. or oven. or microwave. And many people consider the best time of the year to be their “getaway vehicle“In places far from civilization. If you have people doing the dishes instead of doing the dishes themselves, you have more time for pretty things. Less water consumption than washing by hand (5 instead of 25 liters per air) ) ) can also be used as an argument.
jump this rung tag: With the R01 at 13 kg and 43 x 44 x 46 cm the gadget is only slightly larger than the gadget we tested Jacket 2000 Pro Solar GeneratorWith which we also operated the dishwasher for this report without any problems.
design and finish
First impressions of the currently expensive dishwashing aid of 349 euros (here on amazon) corresponds to the product images of the manufacturer. This is a high quality, well made device with a modern look. The glass pane and backlit sensor buttons on the top contribute to this. However, the latter is difficult to discern in direct sunlight, which can be annoying.
Air R01 in everyday test
The scope of distribution includes a cutlery basket, a fruit/vegetable basket, an inlet and outlet hose and a jug for manually filling the internal water tank. Brief operating instructions provide ample information in understandable language.
hardly any installation attempt
We can take away your worry about complicated installation of air dishwasher. Whether you place the device on a worktop or in a campervan, fill it with five liters of water; It practically beeps when the maximum fill level is reached. You then add your dishwashing detergent of choice (we used the Traditional tab) and select a program using the sensor button. End. Dirty water is drained into an available bucket through a sink or pre-attached hose.
If you use the rinsing aid constantly at home, you can alternatively use the supplied hose to establish a permanent connection to the faucet and drain. Just like a traditional, permanently installed dishwasher.
Washing: It depends on the dishes used
The Camping Dishwasher offers five operating modes (Normal, Quick Program, Soft, Baby Care, Fruit). In our testing, we focused on the normal mode. Here the water is first brought to 55 °C. After that rinse with cold water and rinse with warm water at 68°C. The washing process is completed after 70 minutes, followed by an hour of hot air drying.
In normal mode, the power consumption is 950 watts. So if you want to operate the dishwasher as a mobile device or, like us, a solar generator use, make sure it can cope with high current drain. This is not a problem with the Zachary Solar Generator 2000, as it provides a maximum output of up to 4,000 watts. It may be different for smaller installations in camping vehicles.
We are very satisfied with the cleaning result. The two built-in, rotating rinsing arms can also clean up leftovers that have sun-dried for a day. Plates, cutlery and cups are dusted off the machine. The noise emission also remains within a tolerable range with a measured 58 dB. However, the space inside the dishwasher is very limited due to the design. The Air promises 4 x serving bowls, 4 x cups, 4 x small plates, 4 x dinner plates, 7 x spoons, 7 x forks and 7 x knives.
However: the area the manufacturer has provided for the cups, for example, is too small for our really normal sized vessels. In addition, the attached internal LED prevents the placement of heavy objects. The lamp would be better than anywhere else.
Unfortunately, very few pans and utensils fit in mini dishwashers. This is a pity, because these are probably among the unpopular sink objects. We consider the possibility of washing fruits and vegetables as a nice bonus. It takes 20 minutes to complete the program here. A basket of fruits is given for this.
The Hawa Small Dishwasher is perfect for small households that are tired of hand washing and for whom a larger dishwasher is not an option. On the go, the R01 turns into a real “glamper” gadget. Who brings their dishwasher to the campsite? If so, then electricity Using Mobile PV Systems Self-made, the power consumption argument also falls flat. Decide for yourself: is the portable dishwasher missing in your life?
